The Pogues

The Pogues are a Celtic punk band from London, formed in 1982 and fronted by Shane MacGowan. The band reached international prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s. MacGowan left the band in 1991 due to drinking problems but the band continued first with Joe Strummer and then with Spider Stacy on vocals before breaking up in 1996. The band reformed in 2001, and has been playing regularly ever since, most notably on the US East Coast around St Patrick's Day and across the UK and Ireland every December. The group has yet to record any new music and, according to Spider Stacy on Pogues.com, has no inclination to do so. more »

The dawn shines her light to scare off the night
The sun from his slumber is woken
And the bells are ringing out as the town crier shouts
Words too strong to be spoken

There's a rumble in the ground and the air fills with sound
Trumpets in the wind are a blowing
And the townsfolk peep through the curtains of sleep
To the sound of the cocks all a crowin'

The winds may blow
Come rain, come snow
Today's for you and me
I gave my heart to you my love
You gave your heart to me

The sun wears a smile and the clock winks its dial
Clouds in the sky are unfolding
And the birds on the wing like angels they sing
The heavens are glowing all golden

The crowds all spill out, they cheer and they shout
Banners and flags are a waving
And the flowers all a bloom, blow kisses to the moon
As blossom falls on the paving

The winds may blow
Come rain, come snow
Today's for you and me
I gave my heart to you my love
You gave your heart to me

The whole world roars a chorus of applause
Strangers from Delhi to Dublin
Are swept off their feet as they kiss on the street
And the waters like champagne are bubbling

The winds may blow
Come rain, come snow
Today's for you and me
I gave my heart to you my love
You gave your heart to me

I gave my heart to you my love
You gave your heart to me
